Gorilla Glass 6 will let you be less careful with your phone

Corning’s next version of Gorilla Glass will be twice as better as their 5th generation. Their claim is that it can be dropped fifteen consecutive times on a rough surface from a meter. From that distance their competitor was unable to make it past the first drop on the same surface.

Corning currently has their glass on more than 6 billion devices across 45 major brands. With phones going to more glass surfaces now due to wireless charging these numbers are sure to grow quickly. Several different manufacturers are making their tests now for themselves to incorporate the new Gorilla Glass 6 on their next generation of devices.
